#13 – Gamer Lounge Episode – Touchy Apprentices

23 09 2008

It’s finally here!  A new episode featuring both Larry and I!  If I do say so myself, this is our best episode yet.  We wrote out some notes to follow during the show, things flow smoothly, and there were no sound hiccups that I could find.

Some topics are Spore: Origins and Star Wars: The Force Unleashed for the iPod touch/iPhone, free MMO subscription models, Diablo 3 before Starcraft 2, Wrath of the Lich King release date, Warhammer Online, Smallville, Marble Blast Ultra, Star Wars TV series, Larry’s new mac, and more!

Did I mention we actually had a little bit of viewer/listener input this time?  I read one of the comments on the blog dealing with the free subscription model.  That could be you next time!  So leave a comment or send an email to gamerloungepodcast@gmail.com





Please Unleash Me Now… – Demo Roundup!

3 09 2008

Finally, a batch of demos worth playing is on Xbox LIVE. By that I mean…not sports games! 🙂 First off, before we get any further, let me just say Castle Crashers is a must play. I’m going to write a review for that soon, but even the demo can show you how sweet the game is. It’s hard to believe that puppy is only an Arcade game.

So we’ve heard about it for a year, I’ve put posts about it on the blog, and talked about it on the podcast. Finally, The Force Unleashed demo is here! Except…I’m not that impressed. Read the rest of this entry »





#12 – Gamer Lounge Episode – Soul Crasher 9000!

2 09 2008

First off, let me apologize about the schedule being so off lately. Things will fall back into routine again soon, but at least I got an episode out this week! It’s my fault I’m alone again, but this is still episode worthy. I mention the Democratic convention, the Watchmen, Prison Break, Castle Crashers, Star Wars the Force Unleashed, Soul Calibur 4, and so much more!

A Message From Luke!

25 08 2008

So this definitely isn’t the Gamer Lounge’s longest or, for that matter, best episode and I don’t want to sully our reputation. So what do I do? Put out “A Message from Luke!” 😀 As you can probably tell from the title, I’m alone in this episode as well. However, that does not mean it’s a waste of your time! I cover Assassin’s Creed, Castle Crashers, Fighting Games, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, Knights of the Old Republic, and Green Lantern: Sinestro Corps War!

Timed Buttons Presses Unleashed!

15 08 2008

As you may know, I am super excited about the upcoming Star Wars game The Force Unleashed. However, after hearing today that to kill bosses you need to successfully complete a series of timed button presses, I’m not so sure anymore. If this is true, hopefully it isn’t a make or break deal. If I have to start the whole level over again because I didn’t hit one button right, (download the Bourne Conspiracy demo if you want to experience that! 🙂 ) that would suck!

Apparently the boss fights are relatively slow going as well. I don’t mind this so much though considering in the movies the fights were always long and drawn out as well. But again, the button pressing sounds stupid. I guess I would have to try it first before I could really say anything, but the thought of bringing down a giant rancor with my upgraded force lightning sounds way cooler to me!

On a final note Xbox Magazine rated it a 7.5, which isn’t great, but still pretty good.  We shall see I guess.

Actually, on another even more final note, they OXM gave Castle Crashers an 8.5!  Nice!  For once this issue has reviews super early!  Now if only the demos weren’t always a few months old…





#11 – The Gamer Lounge Episode – Touchy Pirates!

13 08 2008

Arrh maities! In this episode we talk about pirating, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed on the iPod touch/iPhone, Tropic Thunder, Dr. Horrible, Firefly, DVD release dates, and, as always, so much more!  Unfortunately it was cut short because I had a family reunion I had to head off to, and I had run out of hard drive space.  Both at the same time no less!
